Print Article Contributed by BSM Staff

NEW YORK -- ABM, a provider of facility solutions, has announced two key executive leadership changes to reinforce its commitment to long-term profitable growth.

Scott Giacobbe, the company’s Chief Operating Officer, has been named Chief Revenue Officer and Rene Jacobsen, the company’s President of Business & Industry, has been named Chief Facilities Services Officer. Both will report directly to ABM’s President and Chief Executive Officer Scott Salmirs.

“Over the years, both Scott and Rene have been instrumental in supporting ABM’s 2020 Vision, and I look forward to their future contributions in these new roles,” said Salmirs. “I believe these changes will further sharpen our collective focus on new sales, client retention and segment profit.”

As Chief Revenue Officer, Giacobbe will be responsible for all revenue-generating functions to drive growth, including Sales and Marketing.  He will also continue to be responsible for ABM’s Technical Solutions segment, as the company amplifies its cross-selling capabilities.

In his new role as Chief Facilities Services Officer, Jacobsen will oversee ABM’s Business & Industry, Aviation, Education, and Technology & Manufacturing segments to reinforce operational efficiencies and enhance productivity.

Salmirs the move “demonstrates our commitment to aligning our organizational structure with our strategic priorities. The continuous evolution of our leadership team will enable us to fulfill our vision to be the clear choice in the industries we serve.”

Since joining ABM through its acquisition of the Linc Group in 2010, Scott Giacobbe has been with ABM in various roles during his tenure, including serving as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer and President of ABM’s Technical Solutions. He began his career at Honeywell in 1987, where he held leadership roles in sales, sales management and regional management.

Rene Jacobsen joined ABM in 2012 as Executive Vice President of ABM’s West Region.  With more than 30 years of experience leading large, complex service organizations within the facility services industry, he most recently served as Executive Vice President and President of Business & Industry, ABM’s largest operating segment.
